Coppull Neighbourhood Plan

The Steering Group is now on version five of the Coppull Neighbourhood Plan and are working as hard as possible to get a version ready to present to all the residents for consultation.

We are looking at preserving our Local Green Spaces, our blue and green assets (water and land), those areas of Coppull that make up our uniqueness, our red brick core of terraces and many other assets like green landscaping.  Remember, we cannot stop building in Coppull, but the Neighbourhood Plan gives a recognised framework for what type of developments can happen and what considerations need to be made when planning these developments.

The Steering Group works have been long and involved and we want to thank those of the group for their diligence and steadfastness in ploughing through lots of information that is new to them and them having to learn about National Planning Policy Framework, Chorley Local Plan and what can and can’t be included in a Neighbourhood Plan to name but a few.

If you would like to exercise your brain cells please consider getting involved, even if you feel you may not have any relevant experience or understanding, we still need people to do research and surveys to complete the plan.  An hour or two would make a welcome contribution to the Steering Group and we would love to have you on board.

The Steering Group has now appointed a consultant from Urban Vision based in Liverpool and they have a wealth of experience in helping produce neighbourhood plans, having successfully done over 200, so we feel we are in good hands!

Progress has been rather quick in the last few weeks, we have met with the consultant and by the time of publication he will have been on a tour of the village, based on the survey results we received from the residents and what you all felt Coppull should look like over the next 5, 10 and beyond years.
The Steering Group has produced extra work by marking up maps to show our local commerce, health, industrial, educational & well-being facilities, to ensure that the consultant gets a concise and extensive feel for our wonderful village.

Please consider getting involved, even if you feel you may not have any relevant experience or understanding, we still need people to do research and surveys to complete the plan. An hour or two will make a welcome contribution to the Steering Group, we’d love to have you on board.

By the People and for the People

Interested in having your say regarding Coppull and it’s future?

Interested in helping to develop a realistic plan that will incorporate aspects that concern the people of Coppull by personal consultation through surveys and social media, by the people of Coppull and for the people of Coppull?

Then you will be interested in the proposal to create a Neighbourhood plan for Coppull.

The plan will be able to influence decisions made by Chorley Borough Council that concern Coppull residents. The Plan will not prevent planning applications as progress is inevitable but, it can influence where and what may be built and ensure we keep our precious green spaces and ensure our infrastructure is not overwhelmed!! Far better that in Coppull it will be in the plan and you will have contributed to it!
